Rekapping the best of Triphop

Mixtape Fridays – Coldcut and DK [Solid Steel]

Coldcut’s Timber is almost entirely what got me into electronic music originally, not Daft Punk with electronic stuff, but the crazy cut up video that was done for this and I originally only heard of it in a mixtape.  Honestly without Timber, I would probably be creating metal or punk rock jazz music rather then the electronic fusion stuff.  Factoring that Coldcut’s release today of a mixtape for Solid Steel, I had to go about sharing the mix.

Ultimately if you pickout a lot of what I’ve shared so far as far as mixtapes go it’s often hiphop or jazz oriented or very heavy dance-ish stuff, often from Solid Steel, arguably my favorite weekly series of mixtapes whether that is in video or just audio form, sort of the perfect thing to throw on for pumping up a party or waking up in the morning if you’re over here on the west coast of the states.

PS: those Gleen Astro tracks are amazing, check out his soundcloud.

I will in the near future do an article about Gleen Astro and also Aphex Twin and his Syro album which should easily be the most accessible album in the sense of enjoyment and possibly an album of the year candidate, and the new MF DOOM album: NehruvianDOOM soon to release which will probably be the top hiphop release of this year.
